Festa Della Repubblica

On June 1, 2017 the honorable Consolato Generale d’Italia in Miami, hosted a private reception at the Coral Gables Country Club for the Italian community in Miami to celebrate La Festa della Repubblica, known in English as Italian National Day. This is national holiday in Italy that commemorates the day in 1946, on the heels of World War II that the country voted to transition from a monarchy to a republic. In Italy, there is a parade and formal military procession in Rome, as well as celebrations throughout the country. La Dolce Vita!

In the United States, the holiday is an opportunity for Italian expatriates to join with their Italian American friends and celebrate their homeland.

Many of you may not know this, but THE COLLECTION sits right beside the Italian Consulate offices in Coral Gables and we had the opportunity to be part of the celebration. Before guests walked through the doors of the Coral Gables Country club, they were greeted by two Italian showstoppers that set the tone for the event: The new 2017 Maserati GranTurismo Convertible and an all-new 2017 Alfa Romeo Guilia Nothing would make for a better entrance.

Guests took photos with the vehicles and product specialists were on site to kindly answer any questions and provide guests with information about the vehicles. For more information, visit www.thecollection.com
